Ototivo, Pulliam named national Scholar-Athletes



Paige Pulliam

For three years, Pulliam has been a strong member of the team and a model student.

The junior guard scored 211 points for the Drovers this season and came in second on the team in steals with 41 and assists with 56. Additionally, Pulliam had the team’s highest free throw percentage, making more than 80 percent of her shots from the line.

Leading the Drovers in scoring as a sophomore, Pulliam has scored 690 points in her three years at USAO. She’s also had 150 assists and 106 steals.

Pulliam has not spared her studying, however. As a biology junior, she has a cumulative grade point average of 3.90. She is also active in Drovers Against Cancer and the Biology and Associated Sciences Club.

In February, she earned Academic All-Conference honors. Last season, she earned USAO’s Bill and Pat Smith Scholar-Athlete Scholarship, awarded to one male and one female athlete each year.

Pulliam, a guard from Newcastle, is the daughter of Wes and Janice Pulliam.
